Rogue Trader Episode 3 – Footfall

Footfallbanner

Things could have gone worse for the crew of The Brigand’s Lament. They came out of their unexpected detour with a new transport ship to add to the Schoenerberg dynasty and a useful new subordinate: the strange, yet incredibly friendly Xenos girl, Cavianne Omette. No immediate profit is gained, but a substantial investment is had, one that can possibly assist the dynasty very, very well in the future.

The crew continues where they left off, back tracking past the port of Footfall and off for their fabled treasure ship. Except there’s an asteroid belt in their way, and an ecclesiarchy ship nestled amongst the debris, damaged and desperately sending vox transmissions for help–yet never once returning a single attempt at direct communication with Lord-Captain Schoenerberg.

Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 3

The Firewall team is going undercover, posing as Jared Dirac and his team of anonymous Red Devil terrorists. They have received an itinerary of sorts, and have already completed the first task; a daring raid on a TITAN infested settlement on the outskirts of the Titan Quarantine Zone.

There, they recovered a strand of dangerous nanotech for the terrorists, and almost lost Griswold Stuart to an attack by the site’s fractal guardians. Having survived their brush with horrific death, the Firewall Sentinels are poised to carry out a robbery on the Ashoka 22, a maglev train carrying a hypercorp’s secret cargo.

Adventures in the grim darkness of the far future continue. Following his successful salvaging of The Emperor’s Bounty, Siegmund Schoenerberg receives a vox transmission that stands out from all the usual spam mail and advertisements. An old servant of his great grandfather’s is somehow, someway still alive, and also incredibly old. But no matter, he’s got an old relic that needs to fall into the hands of the last survivor of the Schoenerberg dynasty. A relic with coordinates to an old treasure ship Siegmund’s great grandfather investigated decades upon decades ago . . .

What they don’t expect is warp shenanigans and the fallout that follows.

Eclipse Phase – The Thunder and the Whirlwind Episode 2

Jared Dirac, the traitor to Firewall, has been captured, intact. Four of the Burner Morphs have been captured (two in less than mint condition.) The VTOL, the weaponry, and the gear from the smuggler’s cave have all been captured.

The first step for the Firewall Sentinels will be to parse the information they gathered. Interrogate Dirac, examine the records from the Red Devils, and – carefully – investigate the nanotech, both the secured container and the nanoparticles.

From there, drastic steps will have to be taken to shut down the terrorists, and fast.

Rogue Trader Episode 1 – Port Wander

brigandslament

The crew of the Brigand’s Lament are an ambitious lot, and they’re looking for that one treasure that will secure their place in history. When they hear about an old ship called The Emperor’s Bounty, a derelict vessel that went missing several years ago, they can’t help but jump at the opportunity.

The Emporer’s Bounty has turned up somewhere deep in the harsher parts of the Void, and Lord-Captain Siegmund Schoenerberg has received a valid claim to the wreckage.  The Schoenerberg dynasty could certainly use the money.
